republican votes on this. and the deal he wants to avoid the fiscal cliff. live from capitol hill, steve handelsman, news4. >>> steve, thank you. now, for more on the scandal involving the former cia director, nbc's pete williams joins us now. there's so many developments in so many different directions in this story. what's happened today? >> well, today we learned general petraeus will in fact testify before the senate about what happened in benghazi. it will be in a closed session. we're told actually he volunteered to do it. the senate said they wanted to hear from him, but his friends say he called the cia, called his associates there and said i do want to testify. today the director of the fbi and his deputy director went up and talked to some members of congress about why the fbi did not inform them or the white house, while this investigation was still going on. the fbi insisted from the beginning that there are clear rules about when you tell other people what you're finding out in the middle of an investigation. they said that involves only intelligence activities, and that the
not to disclose the al qaeda connection to the attack, in order to avoid tipping off the terrorists. steve handelsman is on capitol hill now with a special treatment that congress gave to the retired general. steve? >> reporter: hi, jim. it wasn't a hot seat, it was more a warm welcome up here on capitol hill tonight. some republicans are still charging that somebody played politics with what the public was told about benghazi. petraeus testified that if that happened, it wasn't the fault of the cia. former cia director david petraeus kept out of sight until he got home. lawmakers had cleared the way for him to get to the closed-door hearing without walking through halls. a favor to the general, who apologized to lawmakers for his affair. petraeus testified the cia figured immediately it was al qaeda that attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. killing the u.s. ambassador and three others. how the cia with an eye on libya missed the threat is still under investigation. but petraeus' testimony helped. >> it added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intellige
with us, republican strategist steve schmidt and newly elected democratic congressman from texas, joaquin castro who just happens to have a twin brother who is the mayor of san antonio. oh, my god. >> call him later today. >> not call the mayor, the joke and whole fun with the split screen that will be done never that will get old never. no just fascinating. great to have you here. congratulations on your election. a lot to get to. chuck todd, let's start with this scandal about general petraeus. within this white house this had to be something that really took them by surprise but then there was a big question does he need to resign? >> it really did. the president did take -- they didn't want to fill this step. it was funny to watch so many fairly high-level white housers on friday didn't know why what was going on. didn't know this whole -- i mean, the president it was a tight circle of people that knew specific reasons and going down that road. this suspect an opening they wanted to fill. they have plenty of openings they wanted to fill, particularly on the national security team. >>
dishim. steve kornacki co-host of "the cycle." karen finney, and msnbc contributor perry bacon political editor for thegrio.com. steve, here is the story everyone is talking about today. the gop's media cocoon it's called. it says that many republicans fear their party is trapped inside a self-selected media universe in which only their own views are reinforced and an alternate reality is reflected. now, coy hai could have told th that. what took them so long to wake up and smell the cool late and smell the coffee and get burned by their own tea party? >> i think it was two things. this is the first time things really didn't go their way politically. they decided we're going to oppose everything obama does, we're going to obstruct and be there to get power back when people say the economy has not improved. what happened was obama's approval rating came down fast in 2009. republicans had a great midterm in 2010, and so they could convince themselves for the last two years, the economy is not in great shape. we have already had these successes, we're going to win this election. all these p
steve mcmahon and grover norquist. is president obama worried about his legacy? will that make him more amenable to make a deal? >> well, i think every president thinks about their legacy. especially any president who is elected for a second term. they are looking at never again running for office again. and i think the reason you are seeing a president bring everybody in business leaders, labor leaders, and members of the opposition party is because he understands the significance of the moment and he understands the urgency of the need. and he wants to bring -- wants to bring everybody together around something where everybody gives a little bit but the country gets something significant. frankly, something the voters are asking for. which is a government that finally works. >> all right. agreed. i think voters would like a government that finally works and grow it is economy. you probably saw all of the stories today in "the new york times" and "wall street journal." the president is going to take this show on the road. what i'm trying to figure sought this. what is the show he takin
and nobody knows how this will end. joining me now, steve kornacki and krystal ball, co-hosts of "the cycle" on msnbc. >> our guys, the upper echelon of the republican party, want to fashion themselves as members of the ruling class. we the country class are not in the ruling class. we're in a problem. >> steve, limbaugh is pointing to a big split in the party. where do you think this is going? is this a fight we're going to see rush and the establishment have? >> yeah. this is the problem for the republican party. that kind of a fight is probably good for rush limbaugh in terms of it gives him something to talk about, gives him status within the conservative movement. and it really allows him to rile up his audience, his base and say, i'm the voice of the pure conservative. it's this sellouts in the party establishment who were trying to get us to fold on our principles on what we believe on. rush throughout his career, he can go back two deck as and see them fighting george bush sr. on tax increases. he's done well defining himself as the voice of the pure party base. the party base likes
mean, to your point, i read it entirely differently from steve. i read it as, i'm probably not going to appoint her -- >> fighting for her. >> i'll get a defense out automatically so that when i don't we don't have to relitigate this again and everyone knows where i stand on my friend susan rice. but you and i talked about this earli earlier, governor and made a bet with a colleague. >> not for $10,000. >> not. >> way more than that. >> you and i agreed against another colleague that if susan rice was put up for nomination we could think of a couple democrats who would oppose her nomination. >> right. >> why would obama waste capital on susan rice when he's got so many other things to worry about right now? >> s.e. makes a good point. the president has to use capital. we need republican cooperation to get anything done in this country, important things. >> right. >> why rip off a scab and an open sore trying to build that cooperation? that's on the one hand. on the other hand, the president i believe, deeply believes that this is unfair but i think his first goal was to stand by susa
